Our Nativity


We go to PE every Monday. We took photos when we were doing balancing. We used a ladder and benches. Everybody got a turn. We stood at the top of the ladder for three seconds. We stood on the ladder then we jumped down. We did forward rolls on the mat after we jumped off the ladder. We put benches on the ladder. We jumped down or walked down a bench. Everybody had great fun doing the balancing.

Once there was a man and a woman who did a  job every morning. The man caught two fish and the mother baked five loaves. Micah, the son, went down to sell the food in town. A huge crowd came to see Jesus. There was not enough food for them. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish from Micah and blessed them. He fed the large crowd and there were twelve baskets of food left over.

First and second class made Chinese lanterns for Christmas. You need to get a balnk sheet of paper and colour it in. Cut the paper out. You get a stapler and staple the top and bottom. Then you get tinsel and hang it up. We enjoyed making them.

We read a legend called the Giant from Scotland. This is the story. Once there were two giants. Their names were Una and Fionn and they were from Co. Antrim. They lived in a castle. One day a messenger arrived to talk to Fionn. “Are you willing to fight Angus?” said the messenger. “I will challenge him” said Fionn. Fionn started getting ready. He built a big causeway to Scotland. One evening when Fionn came home Una was worried. “Fionn”, said Una, “I have just heard that Angus is the biggest and certainly the strongest giant in Scotland. You will not defeat him with strength. You will need a plan” they thought for hours. Eventually Una came up with an idea but she didn’t tell Fionn. The messenger came again. “Angus will come tomorrow”, he said. The next morning when Fionn got up he saw Una knitting. “Why are you knitting while I have to fight Angus today?” shouted Fionn. “This is my plan” said Una. “Put this on” she said. “Earlier on I asked Fergus to make a cradle for me” she added. Later on Angus came. “Where is Fionn?” shouted Angus. “Is he afraid to meet me?” “Fionn is out hunting” said Una. “He will be back soon. Come in” said Una. “Our baby is over there”. “That’s one big baby!” thought Angus. Angus ran away at the thought that he had to fight a beast. But when he got to the causeway he thought, “What if that huge beast is chasing me?” So he threw rocks from the causeway into the sea. To this day you can only see a little bit of the causeway. We hope you enjoyed that story.

We went to a play in the hall called Wizard William. First we saw a man called Wizard William. He can make you breathe heavily. Then we saw King Arthur, the king of the story. Then Arthur said “Get my queen a present at once! Let’s wake her up and see what she wants”. Soon she woke up and told them she wanted to be a sugarplum fairy. The king and queen went back to the palace. William put the ingredients into the pot. Then his maid killed a spider and put it into the pot. Then Wizard William came back. He did the spell and turned the queen into sugar! Then they went to the Wonderful Wizard of What and they asked him how to turn the queen out of sugar. He said that the only way to turn her back was to get a green emerald in Greenland. So the Wonderful Wizard of What did a teleporting spell and Wizard William was teleported to Greenland and got the emerald. He changed the queen back but he changed his maid into sugar. We thought that the play was amazing.
